A Twisted movie I can vividly remember - Yvette Mimeaux is a B movie queen
4 June 2006 | by ddeboerSee all my reviews

I give this movie a high rating simply because it is good exploitation. I caught this on cable TV late at night in the 80s and I was shocked by it's demented story of abuse as group psychotherapy. I haven't been able to locate it ever since. It doesn't seem to be available anywhere. Yvette Mimeaux was also in another hard to find film made for TV and derived from "Jackson County Jail" called "Outside Chance". It's another trash exploitation film my mother and I caught on TV and couldn't stop laughing in disbelief. It is another hard to find movie and burned in my memory. "Outside Chance" is just a trashier and campier version of "Jackson County Jail". Yvette must be a B movie queen of the late 70s early 80s.
